    Favourite Movie Posters/Movie Poster Collections

    Hey Guys,
    I've searched through the archives and could find no threads dedicated to movie posters.

    So how about it? Do any of you collect movie posters? Or do any of you have specific examples of favourite movie poster art?

    Me? Well, looking about me at the moment, I can see one-sheets for BLOOD IN THE STREETS (US release title for Sergio Sollima's REVOLVER), THE OFFENCE (Lumet), THE EVIL DEAD (a reproduction) and THE SEARCHERS (the SE video release promo poster). There's also a quad for COBRA VERDE, from when it was shown in London.

    In safe storage, I have original one-sheets for PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID (1973 release) and SLAUGHTER HOTEL ('See the slashing massacre of eight innocent nurses' screams the headline of a faux-newspaper), together with the 'silver' one-sheet for Woo's THE KILLER. And the prize of my collection is an enormous four-sheet from the Italian release of EMANUELLE IN AMERICA (bearing the image of Laura Gemser with her arms outstretched, and set against the New York skyline)--now, you don't want that hanging on the wall of your study when the ladies come a'callin'.

    I've got a couple of pics of the BLOOD IN THE STREETS and THE OFFENCE posters on my HD. Here they are:

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Although I'm not a huge fan of his films, I love several of the French posters for Jean Rollin's films. They're great.

    I used to collect posters and lobbies, but lost interest and sold off most of them. The only ones I have hanging are a reprint of Lang's METROPOLIS and the reissue of Powell / Pressburger's A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH (which, IMO, trumps the design of the original). As much as I love Hammer films, I think most of the posters are butt ugly. At least the U.S. and U.K. versions.

    I don't have many. My old room was practically wallpapered with posters, but when I moved I kept it conservative. These two are my favorites of what I have now:

    i don't know butchie instead.

    You've got good taste, guys.

    I agree, Wayne: some of the Hammer poster artwork was strangely bland or in some cases, 'butt ugly'.

    I forgot to mention in my earlier post, but another of my fave posters (which I have hanging in another room) is the quad that accompanied the reissue of LE CERCLE ROUGE in the UK (another favourite movie of mine). I don't have any pics of my LE CERCLE ROUGE poster, but so you can visualise it I've grabbed an image off the Net:

    That's the EVIL DEAD one-sheet I've got, Bård.

    In my office at work, I've got a promotional mini-poster for LAND OF THE DEAD hanging (or rather, stuck with blu-tack) above my desk.
    Cheers,

    Re: Favourite Movie Posters/Movie Poster Collections

    I got into collecting film posters only about six years ago. I don't have a lot of disposable income in which to really go hog wild, but I have gotten some great deals in various places, including a flea market held in a Drive-In and the owner's nephew sells off quite a bit of the old inventory and gives great prices, too. I've also gotten some original posters and lobby cards as Christmas gifts, which is always neat. I recently took some photos of my posters and lobby cards for renter's insurance, but haven't gotten them developed, yet...will post a link or share a few in the post, when I do. Being a Hammer/Amicus fanatic, I love many of the posters, but will admit a few of the posters leave something to be desired. Here's what I currently own....

    Re: Favourite Movie Posters/Movie Poster Collections

    Have become quite into collecting the last couple years or so, but limiting it to the "creeky brit-horrors" of the Hammer and Amicus variety that I love so much (here's my list....if anyone has any of these posters they want to part with, especially "country of origin" Quads and the like, I hope they'll let me know):

    The Curse Of Frankenstein US 1-sheet ('57)
    (I actually have 2 of these should anyone be interested in one)
    The Gorgon US half-sheet ('64)
    The Skull US 1-Sheet ('65)
    Torture Garden US 1-Sheet ('67)
    Frankenstein Created Woman US-insert ('67)
    Frankenstein Created Woman US 1-Sheet ('67)
    Dracula Has Risen From The Grave UK Quad ('68)
    House That Dripped Blood US 1-Sheet ('70)
    House That Dripped Blood US-insert ('70)
    Asylum UK 1 sheet ('72)
    Vampire Circus US 1-Sheet ('72)
    Vault Of Horror UK Quad ('73)

    OTHER HAMMER/AMICUS I'D LIKE TO HAVE (should anyone be selling):
    Tales From The Crypt (especially UK Quad)
    Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors (especially UK Quad)
    Horror Of Dracula
    Curse Of Frankenstein
    Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (especially UK Quad)
    Devil Rides Out (especially UK Quad)
    Dracula, Prince Of Darkness
    Quatermass And The Pit (especially UK Quad)
    Drac, POD/Plague OF The Zombies combo one sheet
    OTHER NON-HAMMER/AMICUS I'D LIKE TO HAVE:
    The Creeping Flesh
    Horror Express (especially UK Quad)

    I'm ultimately looking to get the "choicest" ones linen backed (if not already done) and framed. Any suggestions as to best hardware (glass over plexiglass, etc) to use? I'd be most greatful for any suggestions from any pros.
